Piers Morgan has left ITV’s Good Morning Britain show after a bust-up this morning which saw 41,000 complaints lodged with Ofcom. Ofcom is now investigating the complaints.

On Monday, Piers said: “I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she said, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report.

“The fact that she’s fired up this onslaught against our Royal Family, I think, is contemptible.”

Today he walked off set after having a go at the GMB weatherman, Who accused Morgan of “continuing to trash” the Duchess.

An ITV spokesperson said: “Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.”
